The Setai Hotel and Residences consists of a new 40-story, 163-unit luxury condominium and a new eight-story hotel. The Setai Hotel and Residences offers an 88-room, five-star luxury hotel in a new building representational of an original historic art deco landmark building, a residential condominium tower, a private garage, a spa and health club, and a world-class restaurant and bar. More specifically, the condo tower is one of the tallest structures among the South Beach skyline. The building begins with a two-story lobby space, eight levels of below parking and 163 condo units beginning on the 11th floor with the two-story “townhouses in the sky” and continuing 27 floors to the final two stories of penthouse units featuring their own infinity edge pools and private terraces.
Pricing for these units range from $450,000 to $8,000,000 per unit.
The hotel was originally scheduled to be a renovation of an existing 8-story historic art deco building. Due to structural concerns with the existing building, the plans were redesigned such that the existing building would be demolished and a new building, representational of the old one, would take its place.
The plan for this structure was to create a five-star hotel similar to other Adrian Zecha facilities, five of which have been ranked in the top ten beach resorts in the world.
